Imperfect & Invaluable Books

Trying to give voice to our habit of discarding 320 million books each year and not recycling them, I have been collecting books of mine that were printed or bound imperfectly. Their content remains invaluable so I donate them as opportunities arise. However, if you would like to adopt one, or a set, then please read on. 

How imperfect are they?

Certain pages with black backgrounds were cut or printed imperfectly. And some books were bound imperfectly so the spine is imperfect. You can see examples of their imperfections in the video on this page.

Wanting to not waste the resources and carbon footprint that went into creating these books, I have saved them from the landfills and am hoping to find them curious owners. I hope you'll consider adopting one or gifting them.
